Who were those people, what were their stories, why are they smiling, what made them sad? What emerges are surprising and poignant tales of love and friendship in a variety of settings - an estate in the Highlands of Scotland; a travelling circus in Canada; an Australian gold-mining town; a village in Ireland; and the Scottish capital, Edinburgh.
Some will find joy and fulfilment - others would prefer happier endings. Each of them, though, will find love, and that is ultimately what matters.

Several "I wish that I had written that..."
What made the experience of listening to Chance Developments the most enjoyable?
It makes commuting so much less hellish, to the point where, with certain books, I don't want to arrive at destination.
What did you like best about this story?
The multiple stories. Probably as romantic as you will find McCall-Smith. Several of the stories were quite remarkable.
Which character – as performed by the narrators – was your favorite?
Always loved Davina Porter but there were no duds. Robert Ian McKenzie is always a standout.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
Old Photographs and Pictures disclose some remarkable tales. ( I was already casting characters for some of them.)
Any additional comments?
Had to listen to a couple of them two times. So many remarkable asides on the human condition ...
